The Aerostar Aerostat System is a proven technology providing key situational awareness in a given area through its radar and EO/IR payloads. It provided a broad picture of the surface and air traffic around the HSV SWIFT. This paid big dividends in extending the range of onboard systems on HSV SWIFT.”— Ted J.
